This month, we are joining forces with the Truth, Reconciliation & Learning Group and will share a movie and discussion afterward. Jessie Hemphill, of the Gwa'sala people, will be in attendance to share her experience in the making of the film.
'HOW A PEOPLE LIVE' traces the history of the Gwa’sala-'Nakwaxda'xw First Nations, who the Canadian government forcibly relocated from their traditional territories on the coast of British Columbia in 1964. This is a story about how a people live – how they overcome incredible hardships to reconnect with their land and culture and begin the healing and rejuvenation of their community.
